[The film] has a refreshingly snotty sense of humor...Dick would put a banana peel out on Ventura Boulevard if he thought a[n MPAA] rater might slip on it.

Even if you've never given a second thought to who bestows ratings on movies or how those ranks are given, Kirby Dick's enlightening documentary will catch you up in its infectious spin of curiosity.

Dick bares the graphic inconsistencies in the Hollywood ratings game, especially when it comes to the great divide between violence (bring it on) and sex (don't take it off).

a head-spinning mystery, a brisk history of motion picture censorship in the U.S. and entertaining, often hilarious, visual proof of Hollywood's hypocrisy in his latest film.

A damning documentary which indicts the MPAA as a thinly-veiled arm of the handful of Hollywood studios which have come to dominate the film industry.

It takes balls for documentary filmmaker Kirby Dick to take on the all-powerful Motional Picture Association of America (MPAA) ratings board.

Um protesto importante e ocasionalmente revelador, mas que se enfraquece por não oferecer alternativas viáveis ao sistema de classificação da MPAA e pela auto-inclusão desnecessária do diretor na discussão.
| Original Score: 3/5

It makes a good case for some all-American free enterprise to come up with an alternative.

...begins as an admirable attempt to understand why the MPAA's rating system is what it is, and how it evolved into the strange and niggling monster it has become.
